The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is offering a pair of webinars to demonstrate a new process for grant applications.

Beginning on Jan. 1, all grant applicants will be required to use Workspace to submit applications through Grants.gov. Accordingly, EPA’s Office of Grants and Debarment will host a Grants.gov-led session that will provide training and a demonstration on Workspace.

A session for all grant applicants will be held on Monday, Dec. 4, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Eastern time. A session for tribal applicants will be held the following Monday, Dec. 11, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Eastern.

For more information, go to this EPA web page. The agency said it will record the webinars and post them on that web page for those who can’t attend the live sessions.

The EPA regularly offers grants that can be used to retrofit or replace older school buses and other vehicles.
